Fallout: New Vegas developer Obsidian isn’t currently working on a new Fallout game – but its CEO, Feargus Urquhart, said there was “no question” about doing it when asked. I’m here.
talk dual shockersUrquhart said his studio would definitely work on a new Fallout game if given the chance, though he’s not sure Bethesda would ask for it.
“If we get the chance to make another Fallout game, we will definitely do it. It doesn’t matter if we do it, it’s just if the opportunity presents itself,” Urquhart said. “Maybe he’s already spent a year at Interplay because he wanted to work more on Fallout. I love Fallout.”
But don’t expect anything right away. To mark the series’ 25th anniversary, Obsidian has more or less confirmed that he’s not creating a Fallout game at this time.
Happy 25th Anniversary to the original Fallout! A franchise whose roots helped shape us and the world we truly love.
And before anyone asks, our plates are pretty full right now, so no. https://t.co/f8gHiWb6xv

Interplay was the creator of Fallout and its spiritual predecessor, Wasteland, and Urquhart worked for the company from 1991 to 1996. Bethesda acquired the rights to create his Fallout game in 2007, and Obsidian is the only developer other than Bethesda to create his mainline Fallout game.
The developer is currently working on Starfield, a space-based RPG, and will then begin production on Elder Scrolls 6. Starfield will be in development for his eight years when it releases in 2023, while the new Elder Scrolls will officially come out in his 2020. As of 2018, it is still in the prototype stage.
However, Fallout 5 won’t be released until Elder Scrolls 6 is released. That means he could be a decade or more before the player returns to his Wasteland.
